Teddy Rose of So Many Precious Books, So Little TimeGuidelines:
- Sign up on the challenge announcement page, using Mr. Linky, and leaving a direct link to your blog post about the challenge. Your post should contain your list of ARCs that you'll be reading (see #2 below).
- List all the ARCs you have to read right now. Then, throughout the year, you must continue updating that list as you receive more ARCs. Also strike out the ones you finish.
- You don't need to indicate which ARCs you plan to read, but can if you wish.
- Crossovers with other challenges are allowed.
- Audio-books are allowed as long as they are ARCs.
- Read the books and review them on your blog. If you don't have a blog, you can post your reviews on other sites, such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell's, etc.
a. All participants who have or will have twelve or fewer ARCs on hand must read and review all of those books.
b. All participants who have or will have more than twelve ARCs must read and review at least twelve.
- Silver: Read 24 ARCs.
- Gold: Read 25 or more.
If you choose a lower level, you can always change it to a higher level if you like. However, you cannot go from a higher level back down to a lower level.
